What It Means to Live Authentically with Erica Boucher

We hear about “authentic living” a lot, but what does it really mean?

Author Erica Boucher believes your relationship with others, and with life itself, is only as good as, and as honest as, your relationship with yourself. By peeling away our layers, and embarking on a very gentle journey back home to ourselves, we not only get to know who we are but we also begin to consciously and intentionally create the life we’re meant to live.

In this episode of 60 Mindful Minutes, Erica and I discuss:

  • What it means to you to live authentically
  • How we embark on “journey back home”
  • Breaking free from a “fix ourselves” approach to growth
  • The importance of spending time alone
  • Tuning into our inner compass

I loved this conversation and can’t wait to share it with you.
